Hi guys,

What I bring today is another mod of the Elementary OS gtk theme.
It is called Milk just because it is mainly based on a minimal whitish (but not violently white) palette, combined with some light grays. The idea was to get a "flatter" "lighter" "brighter" theme. Maintaining all the details and cared work of the original theme.

[bold]*Updated*[/bold]
Fix: pantheon-files selected folder description, now visible with brighter style and sharper font
Fix: now with new built-in window border, an elementary style lighter alternative
Fix: wingpanel item selection, now it's cooler ^_^
Added: New dark-mode triggered by some apps (foto, geye, terminal, etc)
And a couple of other small details.

You still are able to download the first version from here: [link]

Beside the palette, some of it's features are:
· gtk2 match (pain in the ass)
· wingpanel matching
· custom shadows

The window border is "Elementary Perfecto" in its "mac" flavour... you can download it from here [link]

Really hope you like it : )

How to install
----------------
1) Download and Unzip the file
2) copy it into /usr/share/themes ...you will need sudo permissions to do that.
3) apply the stuff copying into a terminal this line:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme 'elementary_milk'
3a) revert changes entering
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme 'elementary'

Enjoy!


ps. Icons are still work in progress... sorry, I had to deliver a report on my job jeje... : P

Hola rhoconlinux, antes que nada enhorabuena por este gran tema. Comento aquí para pedirte un poco de ayuda. Verás, he hecho paso a paso lo que has puesto en la descripción, y no consigo instalar el tema... Bueno, sí se instala, pero mira como se ve: http :// puu . sh / cuqO2 / db2aec7070 . jpg

Te estaba intentando mandar un tree en la carpeta de themes pero la mierda de filtro anti-spam de DA no me deja. Así que si puedes decirme algún otro modo, perfecto.

Muchísimas Gracias!!

Vale, lo conseguí al final llendo al tweaks y activando Tema de la Interfaz a theme-elementary-milk. Se ve increíble!

how can i install window decoration on my Ubuntu Studio 13.10? (XFCE) is it possible?
rhoconlinux's avatar
Hello ~dreamnymph , I think by pasting the uncompressed folder in /usr/share/themes/ would work. Sadly I'm not quite sure that it will performance properly (or be able to be used at all) cause the decoration was meant for gala (mutter, gnome) so, since that xfce uses a different window decorator engine... I won't give you much hope, but you can try! :)

Thanks for reply :) but doesn't work window decoration on XFCE :(
Which font use in this screenshot?
rhoconlinux's avatar
YEah, I imagined that. :(
Sorry! : P

The font is overlock...

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface font-name 'overlock 11'
where the font is "overlock" and the size is "11".

hola! asumo que usás elementary no?
si es así, todo lo que tenés que hacer es:
1) Descargar el archivo zip desde esta página (a la derecha está el botón)
2) descomprimir el zip.
3) cortar la carpeta que se descomprimió.
 
4) abrir una terminal (botón de aplicaciones en la barra superior - categoría accesorios).
Una vez en la terminal, tipea este comando:
sudo pantheon-files

Ojo, con esto es modo super-usuario, podés romper tu sistema si tocás cosas que no te diga. Así que seguí la guia cuidadosamente.

5) desde el navegador de archivos con super-usuario, ir a /usr/share/themes (comenzando desde "/", o sea desde el root filesystem, o sea que no podés  subir más un nivel para "arriba"... de nuevo, ojo. Estas son todas carpetas de sistema, si hacés cagada tu linux no arranca más)

6) pegar la carpeta descomprimida en /usr/share/themes

7) ejecutar este comando en una terminal (click derecho, pegar, luego de copiar esto)

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme 'elementary_milk'

Saludos! : )

Como puedo elegir los botones de ventana estilo OSX? me siguen saliendo la cruz y las flechas. Pegué la carpeta en /usr/share/themes y he seleccionado todo con la herramienta de Elementary Tweaks.

can i please ask you how you changed the system font?
rhoconlinux's avatar
Yeah, of course.
You have several ways to do that. The easiest one, is with Elementary Tweaks. To install it, run:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:versable/elementary-update -y && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install elementary-tweaks -y
and then search for it in the system-preferences menu. You'll find on the left the option to change the system font.

Another way is with the dconf-editor: run that program on the terminal and then browse org>gnome>desktop>interface and change the value of the entry font-name to one of your preference. Be careful with the name, you have to write it perfectly.

The third way is like the second one, but without any interface. You are able to modify the entry value directly from the terminal with one command, like this:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface font-name 'overlock 11'
where the font is "overlock" and the size is "11".

All the three alternatives do exactly the same thing, which is apply the command of the third case. The only difference is how you do it. : )
Cheers!

i'm sorry if i become a bother, but it tells me the command is not found :(
rhoconlinux's avatar
no problem, which command?
ADDiCT-xx's avatar
actually I just noticed that you were running Linux, i'm on Mac so the command probably work for me.
